Published in 1901, W.E. Ball’s St. Paul and the Roman Law and Other Studies on the Origin of the Form of Doctrine is a fascinating analysis of Roman law, and how expanded comprehension of its language and formation will lead to a deeper New Testament exegesis.
In clear, bold prose, Ball establishes the importance of Paul’s Roman citizenship, and how without it, Christianity may not have extended far beyond Palestine. With Ball’s extensive historical knowledge and profound understanding of Roman law, this exhilarating approach to the New Testament is essential reading for biblical scholars and connoisseurs of history alike.
